At the passing on of my wife I...

At the passing on of my wife I became disheartened and felt that I did not wish to live any longer. One morning as I was talking on the telephone, I suddenly became unsteady and felt a strange lack of control over my body. I tried to continue the conversation, but it became evident to me that I was slipping from consciousness, and I therefore concluded the call. Then I collapsed on the floor with a bump.

The next thing I knew, I heard my sister saying, "God is your Life," and I replied, "I know that." Then I became conscious of pain. Later a Christian Science practitioner, whom my sister had called, visited me at my bedside, and prior to her departure all pain ceased. That afternoon a Christian Science lecture was to be given. I told my sister that I was going, and arrangements were made for my son to drive me to it. I am grateful that I was able to attend and to remain throughout the lecture, for I felt so greatly uplifted that I accepted an invitation to go for a picnic many miles from home the next morning, and I enjoyed the outing.
